Inherited Disorders and Birth Defects

Are My Webbed Toes Inherited?

03/19/2010

Question:

My two webbed toes are inherited from my great grandmother (my mom`s grandmother). I want to know when this might occur again in my family, and if my children have a chance to inherit them also. I have two brothers. Could their children have them, too? The toes that are webbed together are the two toes beside my big toe, and this is on both feet.
